, ashton carter or michelle florinoy. >> there's something upsetting about chuck hagel's reputation slimed up. he's a solid guy, and he's been trashed for the last ten days. doesn't this speak, richard haass, to a problem -- not a problem, but another dilemma for the president of the united states? this is the second nominee that he's had rolled on him? susan rice being the first and now chuck hagel, perhaps? >> first, as you say, chuck hagel's a good man, and i think there's worse things for this country than having a secretary of defense who's a veteran who really knows things and is somewhat reluctant to use military force. i actually like secretaries of defense who are often reluctant to use military force. it ought to be something we only do carefully. if the president, in fact, backs away from chuck hagel, i think it's a loss for this country. and also, it's bad for the president, and it also raises questions about the tactics. this whole idea floating trial balloons, essentially you put somebody out there. they're vulnerable. they become a pinata. people whack at them. even i

and michelle loving to dress up and wearing great clothes, great guests lists, et cetera, he's made a splash. i think he can throw a lot more. looking back at these 50 years of presidential swauares starti with ike goes back a long way. >> ike did not rate so well. you have a picture of his family. >> looking a bit glum. >> alone, glumly watching a movie. >> let's scan over here. richard nixon, a big surprise, quaker that he was, actually threw a pretty good party in town&country. >> would you guess he was the one who threw the most state dinner is in the shortest amount of time in office. 76 in 3 1/2 years. >> and loved -- >> was a great pal with duke ellis. sammy davis junior, knew how to play the piano an could yusheck up and make sure certain people didn't show up if he was paranoid about their allegiance to him. >> a great shot of lbj and something on her head, to he other page, not a big surprise. 5 out of 5 champagne glasses. >> bill and hillary were very set on not getting stamped with the kind of heehaw stigma of the carters, who banned hard alcohol and, of course, you know,

that we didn't vet as closely maybe for defense, michelle florinoy, if she gets a second look. brainerd who's got geithner's old job at treasury, if she gets a second look, laura tyson, somebody from the clinton years. >> stephanie, you have done these confirmation battles before. you're not part of the administration now. >> that's right. >> but two questions for you. one, could the, should the white house have mounted a more vigorous defense or any kind of defense of susan rice beyond what the president said at the start of that cabinet meeting? and secondly, haven't they opened themselves up to the next battle? because republicans have got some blood in the water here. they can go after the next nominee, right? >> no. well, i think in terms of the defense of susan rice, let's not forget how all of this happened. it started in the heat of a presidential campaign. she was clearly being used as a scapegoat to get at the president. and the president made it clear that he wasn't going to let that happen. but i think that susan saw the writing on the wall and didn't want to make this about
